PADOVA, ITALY — Omas Industries plans to reopen its production plant in Italy on April 14.

The company had announced in mid-March a partial, temporary closing of the facility due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. 

The Italian government has authorized the operation of companies whose business activities are considered essential, including the food industry. Omas said it is implementing the most strict safety precautions to protect employees.

“The company will do its best to ensure normal operation to supply machines, plants and spare parts during this period of restrictions,” the company said.
